1. With hearts renewed, and cleansed from guilt of sin,
 Send we our voices pealing to the skies;
 Let a pure conscience echo joy within,
 And all our powers in emulation rise:
 To Father, Son and Holy Spirit’s praise,
 Three Whom One Essence joins, one anthem here we raise.

2. Maker of all, the Father uncreate,
 Of Him from everlasting born, the Son,
 And the blest Spirit of co-equal state
 From Both proceeding, are of substance One:
 So in this Trinity the Persons three
 One perfect Being are, one God, one Majesty.

3. Yet, none the less, each Person of the Trine
 God, in His attributes distinct, we own;
 Vainly would reason grasp the things divine,
 Man can but bend adoring at God’s throne:
 O may the Father, Son and Spirit be
 Our help in time of need, our joy eternally.
